The target for this startup is to bring five million users in the next year. Rahul and Parth were college-mates. And after working in corporate for two years, they used their love of gaming, both decided to start a business.
Parth says, “We went into research mode before starting up. Meanwhile, we were working on finance, web, and app development in the organizations. We saw a trend where people were hopping from one game another, from casual to hardcore and serious games. We saw that people were also heavily attracted to fantasy games. It was then that we came up with the idea of EWar.”
This duo created a one-stop solution where you can watch, play, and earn in eight languages.
He also says, “”Everyone in Tier-III, IV, and V areas have access to smartphones and internet, which helped in accelerating the acceptance of this sector in India. People want to spend a considerable amount of time gaming. People even want to start their career as gamers. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the spread of this sector as well.”
This startup also hosts tournaments. Recently, it has host Ewar ‘Mahayoudh’.
For that, the Co-founder and CEO, EWar Games Parth, recall, “Some of our friends used the app and gave great feedback. We had launched just six casual games in the first version and saw crazy traffic. The first monetary transaction I remember was at a hackathon at Dayanand Sagar Institute of Technology in December 2019. We conducted a PUBG match through our app. That was when people paid money and competed in the match. They even checked out the casual games on the platform. The hackathon had around 30-40 students from various colleges, and most took to our app and became our first customers.”
For this startup, Rs 10 lakhs are invested. They got $200,000 from the angel investment arm of House of Jindals and Jeet Banerjee, Founder of Gameplan, a sports management firm based out of Kolkata.
